Great Soup for a Winter Meal.
I love a hot bowl of soup on a winters evening and this hearty cheeseburger soup is just the soup to fit the bill. The soup in this lens is a recipe that a friend gave me several years ago and I have altered it to fit my family's taste.
I use ground turkey for the meat most of the time and I also use lowfat milk and cheese to try to keep it healthy. We love a mug of this soup for lunch and many times we'll add a salad and have it for our main meal in the evening. It is one of my husbands favorites soups.

Cheeseburger Soup Recipe
This is a great soup for dinner. Just add a salad and perhaps some bread and you have a good meal. I sometimes make this soup ahead of time and put in a covered bowl until it is time to eat. I then ladle a cup of the soup in my favorite mug and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes.
- 3/4 pound ground beef or turkey
- 3/4 cup chopped onion
- 3/4 cup shredded carrots
- 3/4 cup diced celery
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 4 cups diced peeled potatoes
- 1/4 cup flour
- 8 oz. Process American Cheese ( I used Velvetta)
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- In a 3 qt. saucepan, brown meat, drain and set aside. In the same saucepan, saute onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley in 1 Tablespoon butter until vegetables are tender. About 10 minutes. Add broth, potatoes and meat and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt remaining butter. Add flour, cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Add to soup and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add cheese, milk, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from heat and blend in sour cream.

Here is the original recipe I received from my friend in my favorite recipe holder. You can see that it has been used a lot over the years.
My Time Saving Tips
Here is what works best for me.
- First of all I put the recipe in my recipe clip so it is always right in front of me.
- When I make the soup I first start the meat to brown.
- While it is browning I chop the onions, carrots and celery.
- When the vegetables are simmering I chop up the potatoes.
- While the potatoes are cooking I get the cheese, milk, salt and pepper in a measuring cup ready to add to the soup.
